Community Lecture Series Event with Dr. Ralph Wood: "The Great Divorce"

Professor of Theology & Literature Dr. Ralph Wood explores and interprets the Christian conceptions of Heaven and Hell, as portrayed in C.S. Lewis' The Great Divorce. How do key concepts in the novel compare to your everyday life as a Christian? What lessons can be learned and applied to the modern world? Dr. Wood will reveal the relevance of this book to the witness of the Church, as well as to the life of secular culture.

 
 
Ralph C. Wood has served as University Professor of Theology and Literature at Baylor since 1998. He holds the B.A. and M.A. from East Texas State College (now Texas A&M University-Commerce) as well as the A.M. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. At Baylor, his main appointment is in Religion, but he is also a visiting faculty member in the Great Texts program. Through his research, Dr. Wood seeks to interpret several of the major literary texts of the West, especially of the 19th and 20th centuries, from a confessionally Christian angle of vision. 
 
Dr. Wood serves as an editorial board member for both the Flannery O'Connor Review and Seven: An Anglo-American Literary Review. He has also taught at Providence College in Rhode Island, at Samford University in Birmingham, and at Regent College in Vancouver.
